Calaveras head coach Doug Clark’s thoughts on Western Sierra: “Western Sierra is a school that I don’t know much about. Obviously, it’s a school that qualified for the playoffs. In all honesty, I don’t think they have a schedule near as tough as our schedule. But again, you can’t look past them, but in all honesty, it’s a team that we can go out and dominate and we should dominate. It would be disappointing if we did not.”
